- Subject: Problems with "disassemble" in CVS
The new code for disassemble uses xfer_memory if it decides we are not local.
The heuristic is a little hokey - for instance, it doesn't know about
to_shortname == "lin-lwp". So for lin-lwp, we end up deciding to read from
The problem is, what if the memory being disassembled isn't _in_ the
executable? I use disas on arbitrary memory regions, and more importantly,
I use it on functions in shared libraries. I don't think we can use
xfer_memory after the target starts running.
